Every week on Blues Unlimited, we bring you the finest from our favorite musical universe. But there's always a lot more that goes into each episode than we possibly cram into just two hours. Among the hardest tasks we face each and every week — whittling the song selection down to just a few dozen cuts — out of a hundred or more tracks that we take into consideration.
Here's one from this week’s episode that got left on the cutting room floor: “Jump Little Children, Jump,” by Leroy Dallas. Recorded for the Sittin’ In With label in New York City, 1948.
At the time we put together our tribute to the blues of the eastern seaboard, this vintage slice of down-home wax had recently been featured on another episode; so rather than repeat ourselves, we picked a couple of other tunes by Dallas instead — even though it pained us to do so. It is, of course, one of the all-time classics of East Coast Blues. As always, we hope you enjoy it!
